Screentime executive chairman Des Monaghan has been appointed to the South Australian Film Corporation Board for a three-year term.
“The SAFC is about to enter a new and exciting era as it prepares to move into the Adelaide Studios and television production will be a crucial part of this future. As one of Australia’s leading television producers, Des Monaghan will play an important part in ensuring that the South Australian Film Corporation has a television strategy that makes the most of the great opportunities provided by these new facilities,” said Premier Mike Rann.
The Underbelly producer began his producing career in New Zealand in the 1960s; he set up South Pacific Pictures before moving to Australia to join the Seven Network. With business partner Bob Campbell, he set up the independent production company Screentime.
“The South Australian Film Corporation has a wonderful legacy of production and this is an exciting time for the organisation with new studios coming online and a new generation of talent beginning to shine through,” said Monaghan.
